Living With Black Bears

Trinity Pawling Gardiner Theater, Route 22
Pawling, NY 12564 United States

More of us are seeing black bears in our yards or visiting our bird feeders, but getting along with them calls for some knowledge and common sense. Come learn from an expert, Connecticut Master Wildlife Conservationist and bear enthusiast Felicia Ortner. Having studied bears for over 30 years and logged over 280 educational outreach hours throughout NY and New England, Ortner hopes to help people better understand and respect, but not fear, black bears. She will address their natural history as well as awareness, safety, and conservation.
